CR seems to be having fun with this stone.

(I've no idea what the background noise which sounds like Morse Code is. It doesn't seem to be there when the camera is in its low light, B&W, mode.)

A close up of Bella

Bella investigating the camera....


There has been very little activity on the tower over the last week or more, until the last few days.

One highlight was the visit of a female Anas platyrhynchos

There has been a bit more peregrine activity recently with both birds on the tray several times, chatting to each other, and occasionally scraping at the gravel.

Unfortunately, they are too late to breed again, so we will have to cross our fingers for next year.

Antiques Roadshow

Sadly, no peregrines at all on the nesting tray over the last few days.

There was plenty of activity down below, since the BBC were recording the Antiques Roadshow!

A clever pigeon?

Seen on the Abbey tower today.

Do pigeons know that peregrines take prey on the wing?

Bella's Breakfast

Camera 3 caught CR with some early morning prey for Bella.

(there is no sound from camera 3 at the moment)


No eggs yet, so they've probably left it too late again.

The camera has seen quite a bit of peregrine activity, including this interesting video.
You can see that Bella is being mobbed by another bird. It all happens too fast to see what kind would be bold enough to do this.
